The Art Club invites all movie lovers to join them for a free film with a discussion every Thursday.
Some of the movies on the Calendar include: “Across the Universe,” “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” “The Devil and Daniel Johnston,” “Super Size Me,” and “Little Miss Sunshine.”
“As an extension of our art club meetings, on Thursday [we] meet from 9 till 11 to watch films in the lobby,” said Derrick White, faculty sponsor for the art club.
The members of the art club come together to suggest movies that they would like to see. The movies are picked based upon what is available and what is popular. Sometimes they have a theme and sometimes they do not. The schedule is not set in stone and is subject to change. The schedule is available at www.tjc.edu/tjcartclub.
“Last Thursday we had on the schedule ‘Bowling for Columbine,’ but out of respect for the Northern Illinois shooting, we decided not to view the film. Everything on our schedule is subject to change,” said White. “We watched a different documentary instead called ‘Confessions of a Superhero,’ about people who live in Hollywood and dress up as super heroes and beg for money out on the street.”
It is a very informal process. A movie is picked, and watched. A discussion follows the movie. The art club welcomes all students to join them on Thursday morning for a movie, and encourages them to join the art club.
“Anyone that is interested in films and discussion is welcome to join,” said White. “If they are interested in joining the art club we would be more than happy to talk to them about it. It’s the most dynamic student organization on campus.”
